New Hampshire update: Gingrich in fourth, Santorum in fifth

(CNN) - Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have flipped spots again in the tally of New Hampshire ballots.

The New Hampshire Secretary of State's office released updated vote totals Thursday showing Gingrich jumping back into fourth and Santorum dropping to fifth. Numbers announced Wednesday had Santorum in fourth and Gingrich in fifth.

Gingrich had 23,421 votes in the latest count, and Santorum had 23,405. Both stood at 9.4% of the vote total, meaning neither qualifies for any delegates from the Granite State.

New Hampshire held its primary January 10. Mitt Romney won the primary with 39.3% of the vote, followed by Ron Paul at 22.9% and Jon Huntsman at 16.9%.

    "...meaning neither qualifies for any delegates from the Granite State."

    In that case, who really cares? If the position changes their delegate count it might have some purpose, although with these two clowns it wouldn't make any difference even if it did their count. The only thing that the GOP provides is some good laughter at all their jokers.

    It would seem that conservatives just might have a point about rampant voter fraud in this country.

    Are the Republicans practicing for the vote count fraud they're planning on perpetuating in November? It's really their only hope against Obama.
